                     Welcome to GNU TeXmacs

GNU TeXmacs is a free scientific text editor, which was both inspired
by TeX and GNU Emacs. The editor allows you to write structured documents
via a wysiwyg (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) and user friendly interface.
New styles may be created by the user. The program implements high-quality
typesetting algorithms and TeX fonts, which help you to produce
professionally looking documents. 

The high typesetting quality still goes through for automatically
generated formulas, which makes TeXmacs suitable as an interface
for computer algebra systems. TeXmacs also supports the Guile/Scheme
extension language, so that you may customize the interface and
write your own extensions to the editor. 

TeXmacs currently runs on PC's and PPC's under Gnu/linux (a >200MHz
processor and >32Mb of memory are recommended) and on sun computers.
Converters exist for TeX/LaTeX and they are under development for
Html/Mathml/Xml. In the future, TeXmacs is planned to evoluate towards
a complete scientific office suite, with spreadsheet capacities,
a technical drawing editor and a presentation mode.

macs – Structured text editor for

macs is a “structured text editor” with special support for mathematical expressions. The typesetting quality of the produced documents is intended to be as high as possible, i.e., comparable to the quality of documents produced with ; The user interface aims to be as natural and powerful as possible. In particular, the text you see on the screen corresponds exactly to what you get after printing. macs comes with a typed lisp extension language. Like emacs, this allows you for instance to redefine keyboard and menu actions. macs can also be used as an interface for computer algebra systems. In particular, automatically generated mathematical formulas are typeset in a satisfactory way. It is possible to generate and PostScript output from macs. After compilation, the output will resemble the PostScript output, although we guarantee no complete compatibility between macs and . It is also possible to import “well written” documents. The present release includes an interface with Ghostscript, which enables you to include PostScript (and some other formats) of images.
